Governor Describes Legislative Session As "Disappointing"

Disappointing. That's the world Governor Beshear used to describe his first session with the general assembly.

Kentucky lawmakers adjourned the 2008 session early Wednesday morning, about an hour after their constitutional deadline.

Lawmakers adopted several key safety measures, including one law that requires people hired to operate amusement rides be at least 18-years-old. Another law requires children under seven ride in booster seats.

Still, time ran out before lawmakers passed several other bills, including a plan to overhaul the state's pension system.

House speaker Jody Richards says in the future, measures will have to be dealt with earlier, or not at all.
